After losing through an 11th-round knockout, he went quiet as he began his recovery from a broken hand with question marks over where his boxing career goes next.

But he broke his silence with a classy message on Instagram today thanking God, his team, fans and Fury for ‘memories that will last forever’.

Wilder posted a picture in his red gown ahead of the showdown and wrote: “Wow, what a hell of a night!

“I would like to first and foremost thank God for allowing me to give the world another part of me that’s driven with passion and determination.

“I would like to thank my team and my fans for sticking by my side through this long process.

“I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is far greater than what I expected to happen.

“We didn’t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons. I’ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win.

“Although, I wanted the win I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more.

“Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport.

“Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in.

“Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”

Wilder may have been beaten again and therefore failed to reclaim his WBC heavyweight world title.

But his valiant performance in Las Vegas, twice getting up off the canvas and twice knocking Fury down, earned him the respect of many boxing fans.
